Im Seong-jae, the ‘new groom’, placed 4th in the Farmers Insurance Open

Again, speed up.

Lim Seong-jae (25, CJ Logistics) smiled broadly. He tied for fourth at the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of $8.7 million). On the 29th (Korean time), in the final 4th round of the tournament held at Torrey Pines Golf Club South Course (par 72, 7765 yards) in San Diego, California, USA, he tied 4 birdies and 2 bogeys and hit 2 under par 70 strokes. With a final total of 9 under par 279 strokes, he tied for 4th place with Sam Ryder and Sahis Tigala (above USA). The championship was won by Max Homa (USA, 13 under par, 275 strokes). 토토사이트

It is the personal best result in the 2022-2023 season. He entered the top 10 for the first time after finishing 7th at the Shriners Children’s Open in October last year. Lim Seong-jae, who tied for 23rd place in the second round, jumped to a tie for fourth place by reducing five strokes from the third round. At the beginning of the 4th round, he faced a crisis by writing down a bogey in hole 5 (par 4), but changed the mood by recording a birdie in hole 7 (par 4). He even dropped a birdie putt over 7m on the 14th hole (par 4). Further birdie opportunities were missed, but his 4th place position was firmly held.

Im Seong-jae performed remarkably last season, winning the FedEx Cup runner-up. In December of last year, there was also a personal slope. He married his girlfriend of over a year. He immediately jumped into the world of competition without even feeling the sweetness of his newlyweds, but the recent flow has been somewhat ups and downs. He tied for 13th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, was eliminated from the Sony Open Cut, and tied for 18th at the American Express. This competition once again created an opportunity for a reversal.

The steps of Korean players are powerful. He succeeded in entering the top 10 in four consecutive PGA Tour events. In particular, all five players who competed in this tournament passed the cut. This raises expectations for the next competition. ‘Rookie’ Kim Seong-hyun (25, Shinhan Financial Group) tied for 20th with 2 under 286 strokes, followed by Kim Si-woo (28, CJ Logistics) tied for 25th with 1 under par and 287 strokes. Noh Seung-yeol (32nd, 44th place, 2 over par, 290 strokes) and Ahn Byeong-hun (32, CJ Logistics, 6 over par, 294 strokes) also stood on the field until the last day.
